What is Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)
Zero trust has been around for more than 10 years. But, as users work from anywhere, and apps move from inside the data center to outside the network perimeter, network and security teams have had to shift their focus. It’s no longer about securing a network. It’s about protecting users, devices, and business resources.
Execution of this framework combines advanced technologies such as risk based multi-factor authentication, identity protection, next-generation endpoint security, and robust cloud workload technology to verify a user or systems identity, consideration of access at that moment in time, and the maintenance of system security. Zero Trust also requires consideration of encryption of data, securing email, and verifying the hygiene of assets and endpoints before they connect to applications.
